Dr Lycia Trouton is an Australian citizen who was born in Belfast. She lectured across theory and practice in Darwin & Adelaide, after working for a decade in Canada & the USA, primarily as a site-specific sculptor who utilised compressed organic materials. Trouton’s practice-led research engages in issues of monumentality and its opposite: the intimate art of memory. Her long-term work on the Canada Council of the Arts funded The (Irish) Linen Memorial has brought her into concerns with restorative justice, language and art, and for which she has just received a 'New Academic Research Grant' from UTAS.

Prior to coming to Australia for her doctorate at Wollongong, Trouton was Artist-in-Residence at the University of B.C. sylviculture forest, Penn State University Berks campus, and the liberal art schools: Albright and Whitman College, USA, among other places, and with architect and landscape architect firms in Seattle. While completing her Doctorate (DCA) from the University of Wollongong, she held a Research Assistantship for an Australian Research Council large discovery grant on the intersection of text and the-art-of-textiles; her Masters (MFA) is in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan; her BFA (Hons) Sculpture is from Carnegie Mellon University, PA.

Trouton's scholarly research includes an essay in the book, Echoes of Irish Australia: Rebellion to Republic, Eds. Dr. Jeff Brownrigg, Cheryl Mongan & Dr. Richard Reid (the latter is the senior curator of The National Museum of Australia's 2011 exhibition, The Irish in Australia, to open March 17th).
